Summary: The novelty of the game going into an automatic slow motion when you crash to show the realistic damage wears off very quickly when you actually make an effort to try and progress in the game. The laps are too long in relation to the progress save points on your memory card meaning you have to complete 3 very long tracks before your progress can be saved.
Summary: I am the proud owner of a nintendo gamecube. the first game i purchased was burnout, and because of how good it was i went out and bought burnout 2. after playing both however i found burnout 1 to be the best and represents outstanding value for money as i bought it for 8quid
Excerpt: "...courteous to your fellow driver?...well...in BURNOUT forgot everything your driving instructor taught you! Yes forget it, becasue here you will be driving like a crazed loon!!! at incredible speeds dogding through the everyday traffic with your heart in your mouth and sweating like a waterfall!!! Burnout is arcade style handling so anyone can just pick this up and start driving like mad without needing to learn complicated controls. You ...
Summary: Wow, this game is intense! Burnout is one of my favourite games to date. If you like realistic racers, that dive into reality, then Burnout is a must. Better than todays latest titles like need for speed and other racers, due to the fact that it is based on speed, and crashes. Hit a car and watch the stunning replay show your crash.
Excerpt: "...Burnout is essentially a fast racing game on GameCube and PS2 made by Aklaim and developed by Criterion and RenderWare. (A new edition- Burnout II- has recently come out and I am hoping for it for Christmas.) There are 14 manic tracks to drive, which can be unlocked in Championship. You can drive in Europe or USA along dusty mountains like a rally driver, or cut cars up like a murderous drunk. There are cars loads of cars to choose from. There are ...
Summary: What a FUN game this is. It's totally engrosing. All my family love playing it (even the wife!). Really, there's no problem with the crash replays! In MOST car games you have a few seconds pause after a crash whilst the car is put back on the road. It happen's in Mario Kart Double Dash. Yet people grumble about it happening in Burnout because they replace the 2-3 sec pause with a crash replay !!!
Excerpt: "Burnout is very good in my point of view. You can win championships and earn extra cars and tracks. You can even choose what colour your car is in. Some of the championship races are very hard but if you keep practicing you will find them easier. When you complete a championship you unlock tracks and races. These races give you the chance to win cars. Multiplayer can be fun because it is very competitive. Driving at incredible speeds through traffic ...
Excerpt: "Not being a fan of racing games per se, I have to say I approached this game with some trepidation, as the majority of titles in this Genre I have found fine for a little while, then they just become boring, race around a track, press the brake, press the accelerator, overtake some cars, ya-da ya-da etc. So, after a brief visit to my local branch of Gamestation, i shelled out my £32 (Gamestation are an excellent source of games, with substantial ...
Pros: High speed crashing, High speed Crashing and oh did I mention the high speed crashing !
Summary: The first time you powerslide round a corner, adjust the oversteer and squeeze between a bus and an 18 wheeler truck, you know that this is a good game. This is no sim, far from it. It has an all-round arcadey feel, its not the just the handling of the cars, from the scoreboards to music and backgrounds. As with nearly all GC games, the graphics are pretty damn good. Something that doesnt come with all gc games is the playability.
Brake the traffic laws...and don't pay the fines!!!

Summary: This is my online review for the Gamecube's version of Burnout, by Acclaim. When I first read about this game, it seemed like just another racing game. It has a choice of cars, a choice of tracks, and a certain number of AI Bots to race against. If that's what you're thinking...you are dead wrong. This game is super-realistic.
